27 December 2010Engineers produce the world's smallest Christmas card

Engineers from the University of Glasgow produced it to highlight their world-leading nanotechnology expertise

20 December 2010Nanoparticle Targets Brain Tumors

Nine years ago, scientists at Cedars-Sinai's Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute detected a subtle shift occurring in the molecular makeup of the most aggressive type of brain tumors, glioblastoma multiforme

17 December 2010High-performance computer for simulating laser processes in nanophotonics

Computer simulations play an essential role in research and development work. They provide a detailed insight into processes from which answers to specific questions can be derived

14 December 2010International Collaboration Boosts Nanotechnology Research

Despite their initial focus on national economic competitiveness, the nanotechnology research initiatives now funded by more than 60 countries have become increasingly collaborative, with nearly a quarter of all papers co-authored by researchers across borders

13 December 2010Microbatteries With Nanowire Hearts

Rice University researchers have moved a step closer to creating robust, three-dimensional microbatteries that would charge faster and hold other advantages over conventional lithium-ion batteries.

03 December 2010Nanoshells Provide Golden "Touch" in Killing Breast Tumors

Gold nanoparticles have shown promise as miniature thermal scalpels that when irradiated with near-infrared light are capable of cooking tumors to death

01 December 2010Measuring the Temperature of Nanoparticles

One of the holy grails of nanotechnology in medicine is to control individual structures and processes inside a cell

23 November 2010Nanoscale Light Sensor Compatible With 'Etch-a-Sketch' Nanoelectronic Platform

University of Pittsburgh researchers have created a nanoscale light sensor that can be combined with near-atomic-size electronic circuitry to produce hybrid optic and electronic devices with new functionality

19 November 2010Cancer scientists believe nanoparticles could accurately target tumors, avoiding side effects

In the past 40 years, scientists have learned a great deal about how cells become cancerous. Some of that knowledge has translated to new treatments, but most of the time doctors are forced to rely on standard chemotherapy and radiation, which can do nearly as much damage to the patients as they do to the tumors.

18 November 2010Nanotechnology, climate and energy: Over-heated promises and hot air?

Friends of the Earth has released a new report debunking industry promises that nanotechnology offers solutions to our most pressing environmental problems, including climate change.
